Peanuts vs Grinch

Day 92 of 365 in the “Marathon of the Dope” . . .

.....................................................................................................

Today’s post will be short and in the form of a question - just like on Jeopardy.

Of these two Christmas Specials, which is your favourite? (Flash up Visuals of Chuck and the Grinch on your inner mind’s eye screen)

First off I have to say, when I was a kid, these specials were something to be looked for in the TV Guide and then remembered (usually by parents) to watch. You just couldn’t see them any other way.

I recall how exciting it was each Christmas season to find out when they were on, then sit down and savour it for them first time each year.

In the digital age (now) this sort of tradition is kind of dead. I mean, you can watch these two specials any time you like - on your phone even. I mean, where is the fun in that?

But that is beside the point.

The question is, which is better? Which one stirs your Christmas spirit more? Which one typifies the season for you?

I’m going with the Grinch . . .

. . . Like minds?

Oh, and officially the US Thanksgiving is over for this year - so it’s okay to start with the Big C chatter.

Until tomorrow . . .
